Pastor Shirley Caesar recently received a Lifetime Achievement Award during the “Allstate Gospel Superfest: A Holiday Special” in honor of her 60+ years career.

“I am proud that the Allstate Gospel Superfest paid tribute to the first lady of gospel music, Pastor Shirley Caesar,” said Allstate representative Pastor Provey Powell, Jr.

“The Book of Proverbs 18:16 reminds us that your gift will make room for you and Pastor Shirley’s talents and gifts have made room for her all around the world with a career expanding over six decades.”


The event, which was dedicated to Caesar, featured several chart-topping gospel artists and aired on TV One. The performers included J Moss, Jonathan Butler, Tim Bowman Jr., Casey J, Dorinda Clark-Cole, Beverly Crawford, JJ Hairston and Youthful Praise, James Hall and Worship and Praise, Lonnie Hunter featuring Structure, Patrick Lundy & Ministers of Music, Jonathan McReynolds, Karen Clark Sheard, and Alexis Spight. Actress Vivica A. Fox served as emcee.

Caesar, who is also the pastor of Mount Calvary Word of Faith Church in Raleigh, North Carolina, was recognized this past May with the National Museum of African American Music’s Rhapsody and Rhythm Award. In June 2016, she received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
